Rated 1 out of 5 by ChefClover Cuisinart Smart StickCordless & rechargable Hand Blender
I wanted to purchase a CORDLESS stick blender. The description did not state if it was or was not cordless. I phoned customer service and they were unable to confirm. The price was higher than the corded model so I took a chance and ordered it. I opened the shipping carton, read the Cuisinart box and STILL did not know if it was cordless. Only when I opened the box and SAW the cord. did I know. BACK TO THE STORE! Catalog dept. is gone and I had to go to a register and wait with my first returned Christmas gift due to POOR description. Not happy. I'm sure the item is fine, IF you wanted a corded unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by aC1D0V3R1D3 An inexpensive product that doesn't last as long as I'd like
I bought this product about 9 months ago. I've been using this Smart Stick everyday to mix up protein shakes and for scrambling my eggs. I've used the blade for making butter, and I've used the food processor attachment to make everything from salsa to small amounts of oat flour. It worked for just about everything I wanted, Which wasn't much. But This morning is stopped working. The plastic gear inside has striped out, so there is nothing I can do to fix it.
I'm going to contact the warranty department and see what they will do to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liv4Decor This is an essential kitchen tool.
The Cuisinart immersion blender is good quality and has usable features and attachments. Although my main use of the tool is immersion blending, I appreciate and also use the extra parts. The beaker is a helpful added feature. Clean up is also easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 I was suprised this was so easy to use
I have wanted a stick blender for many years, and a gift card gave me the incentive to buy one. This was suprisingly easy to use. I have made about 10 smoothies so far, and I just detach the blender section, rinse it and the beaker off ,and I'm done! I haven't used the whisk or chopper yet, but I'm very happy that this works well without splatter or a big glass blender jar to wash.

This was given to me as a gift last Christmas. I have used it about 12 times so I can't comment yet on durability. It is great for gravy and soups you want to blend without moving them to a blender. You can mix everything right in the pot. Snaps together and cleans very easily. Great gift for a cook! Price could be a little cheaper though.

Gave this to my honey for Christmas and he loves it! He has made several cream soups and salsas with it and loves the ease of clean up and the power. He does not like light equipment in the kitchen. He's the primary cook so needed something that would not quit, and he is pleased. If he's happy, we're ALL happy!

I love the stick blender...I used it do mash my squash for thanksgiving dinner and it was very nice and easy to use. Cleans up very easy too. Can't wait to use for pumpkin soup! I also found it was very quiet, I was worried that it might be loud but it's not. I also like the small food processor attachment.

I was searching for a hand mixer and went with this bc Cusinart is just a name you can not go wrong with. I am so happy that I did bc it is just great. I use this to puree soups while cooking, beat eggs, chop veggies etc. This is a GREAT value and you should get one every cook needs this.
